This was a delicious side dish! I rarely cook cauliflower and I am not sure why… probably just the forgotten vegetable at our house. However, roasting it and serving it with all the other additions made for a delicious dish. I could have eaten just this on its own and been satisfied! (The little guys did not go for it, unfortunately… they did their requisite “no thank you” bite and were done.)
Roasted Cauliflower with Red Pepper, Olives, and Pinenuts
Recipe from www.kalynskitchen.com
1 head cauliflower
1 red bell pepper
1 Tbsp. olive oil
salt/pepper to taste
3/4 c. green olives, sliced
2 Tbsp. capers, drained
1/3 c. pine nuts
1/4 c. flat leaf parsley, chopped
In a large bowl, combine cauliflower and bell pepper. Toss with olive oil and salt/pepper. Spread evenly on a baking sheet. Roast at 425 degrees for about 20 minutes.
Remove cauliflower and pepper from oven and return to large bowl. Toss with olives, capers, pine nuts, and parsley. Spread once again on baking sheet and bake another 10-15 minutes or until olives look slightly cooked and vegetables look lightly browned.
